u2 at the lincoln memorial

It was kind of cool to see the boys from Dublin up on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial playing “Pride (in the name of love)” and “City of Blinding Lights” at the pre-inauguration event, televised on HBO. Pretty amazing performance, considering how cold it was… The juxtaposition of a rock band in front of so many flags feels a little jingoistic, but it’s great television… and catch what Bono says about the dream towards the end…. classic.
